micro-practice is a way to fine tune all the little parts of a tune or song that are difficult. focus on trouble spots, trying to improve tuning and tone.

once you are better at all the parts of a tune, you will be prepared for macro-practice in which you put the pieces together and try to make the whole thing flow.

1. work on small phrases, even just 1-5 notes.
2. separately practice bowing and fingering (mini-scales) (e.g. swallowtail jig)
3. use throwaway to build tone
4. play with the phrase by transposing, p
laying backwards and forwards, mini-scales
5. use looping to establish musical flow.
